We stopped here for refreshments while strolling round town. Lovely peaceful gardens, with the relaxing sounds of running water. Ideal for a break on the long hot days.

We found this place on TA and so looked out for it as we walked around Rhodes old town on a hot day. We were looked for a nice place to have lunch and came upon the entrance at just the right time. It is a lovely patch of shady greenery right in the middle of all of the tourist... More

Beautiful getaway from the heat ant the crowds in old town. Garden has wonderful shade to hide from the sun and to refresh. Waiters are very friendly and like to make few jokes with the guests while serving them.

In the old town of Rhodes there is such a lively atmosphere and you can get tired! Then we found this garden to relax in, with big trees flowers and little water cascades. Furthermore there is greek music in the bagground and the waiters are friendly and observant.

Socratous garden is a haven from the bustle of the Rhodes old town. The prices are a little above average ( about 50 cents more ) but worth the money for a comfy chair, beautiful surroundings pleasant staff and peace and quiet . I would ( and do ) recommend this bar to anyone visiting Rhodes old town .

If you are OK with pricy, mediocre, factory produced fodder then this place is for you. Service friendly and fast.

I have Tripadvisor to thank for telling me about this place. We visited on our first day in Rhodes and made regular return visits. After the roasting hot, crowded streets Socratous Garden is an oasis of calm, with comfortable seating, lots of mature trees to provide shade and running water to provide a lovely background sound. Some people might consider... More

Brilliant location for a drink and light meal under the trees and stars. The staff are very attentive, and even when the tourist area is really busy, there seems to be time and space in the garden.
